Can I Buy Pregnant Women Supplements Without A Doctor’s Prescription?
Afternoon, I’m Ayu, aged 20 years. At the moment I am pregnant with my first child, UK for about 6 months. Every month I routinely check the condition of pregnancy to a specialist, and every month I always get vitamins or drugs to deal with my complaints. But last month I did not get any vitamins or medication, the doctor said my pregnancy was normal and fine. I asked, maybe I need vitamins for the fetal brain or DHA, but the health official said there was no need. Is it okay like that or should I buy my own vitamin at the pharmacy? Please explain, thank you.
Hi Ayu .. Thank you for the question.
Pregnant women need vitamin and mineral supplements that are needed for both the mother and the fetus. A good supplement for pregnant women, for example:
Folic acid - good folic acid consumed by pregnant women to help the growth of the baby's nervous system and especially good consumed since before pregnancy until 3 months of pregnancy
Vitamin D and calcium - good for bone growth in the fetus
Iron - good for mothers to prevent anemia and for the fetus to prevent anemia when the baby is born
This supplement should still be consumed by pregnant women. If the stock of ebsi and mother's folic acid runs out then you can buy it at her potek or from the nearest health center, but it's best to be consumed under the supervision of a doctor for her daily dose. Apart from drug consumption, you can also get vitamins and calcium from foods such as: folic acid from green vegetables, cereals, nuts; vitamin D from salmon, eggs, meat foods; and iron from beans, green vegetables, meat. You should still check with your obstetrician regularly and ask about good vitamins consumed during this pregnancy. Do not forget to include a healthy lifestyle, exercise routine that is suitable for pregnant women, avoid smoking and excessive fatigue.
